Default Bold Death and Rebirth after 12 hour period

Please Login to Remove!

Hey Team,

I had an interesting issue and I'm wondering if I should still go through with the RMA for the device or cancel it.

Last night at around 2000hrs, my Bold bricked itself (continuous red light, nothing on screen). After a battery pull, I ended up getting nothing (no light, nothing on screen).

After playing with it until around 0000hrs, I gave up and just left it. Picked it up today around 1230hrs, decided to give it a try, battery back into the device and it boots up.

I had already switched over everything to my backup blackberry (8300 Curve) and now I'm running a full backup on the bold.

Should I go with the RMA and get a new device or should I cancel the RMA and stay with this device?
Has anyone else had this problem before?

Thanks,
--Phil

I think the answer is an easy one. Rma it. You got a backup, got your data, they're offering an rma, take it. Obviously something is wrong with the device you have.

I have the same problem! I switched out batteries and it would not turn back on! No light or nothing. I waited 5 hours and turned it on with out a sim card then it turned on. So I put my sim in and tried to turn it back on, same problem! 5 hours later.... put my sim and it powered on finally! Now I scared, if my phone dies or the battery comes out, i am going to be SOL! Time for a warranty I think....
